  • I met Stevie Nicks (through a mutual friend) when I was living in Arizona. I have also met Reggie Jackson. Stevie was real nice, and very polite. Reggie came into my gas station one night after closing, and made rude comments to me when I refused to spend 20 minutes re-priming the pumps so he could get $10 worth of gas. Edit: To the person who rated this "not helpful", perhaps you could tell me what famous person I met, since you seem to know more about it than me.
  • Three that I can recall: - Darren Sproles, May 2005, a K-State footballer now in the NFL (the San Diego Chargers). - Anderson Cooper, March 2006, a CNN reporter. He was down in New Orleans at a compound for volunteer college students who went down there to help in the cleanup efforts. (The compound had over 1,000 of us staying there for the week.) He interviewed several of us, but I got to talk to him after his show was over, when the cameras were getting put up. - David Coleman, September 19, 2006, "The Dating Doctor".

  • I met Phil Collins in California and got his autograph.
  • I ran into Steven Tyler of Aerosmith at my local supermarket once. Actually, he ran into me. He was talking on his cell phone and pushing a carriage in the parking lot, and he literally ran into me with the carriage. He apologized and went on his way. My wife and I met Gregory Hines in the Delta Crown Room at Salt Lake City airport in September of 1999. We were flying back home from Las Vegas, where we had just gotten married. My wife approached him and sat talking to him for a few minutes. Then they got up and came over to where I was sitting. Gregory congratulated me on getting married, and stated "marriage is a great gift." He autographed our marriage license, putting those same words on the license along with his name. I met Gallagher (the comedian) and Gallagher 2 (his brother) at a trade show I worked in Las Vegas. Gallagher was working the same booth as me under contract with IBM. He got fired after 3 days of the show cause he kept screwing with the audience. He was a bit cranky in person, but his brother was great. (Also, his brother had a GORGEOUS girlfriend that would hang with me while he was doing his act.) At that same show, I met Brent Spiner and Marina Sirtis of Star Trek fame. Marina was very quiet, acting almost shy at the party we were at. Brent was a very warm and outgoing person. Years ago when I worked as a firefighter, I met a number of celebrities who came to the town I worked in to perform at the South Shore Music Circus. Once I almost ran over Donny Osmund as he was crossing a street. I also transported Cher to the hospital by ambulance following a minor car accident. That was when she was in town to film the Witches of Eastwick. I also knew my Dad quite well, and he was somewhat famous. When I was very young, I used to meet famous people all the time through my Dad. I just can't remember any of them - a hazard of growing old :-)
  • Mr. T was at a mall promoting a radio station. He refrained from calling me 'fool', was very nice, and told my brother and me to stay in school. I'm sorry, Mr. T! I hope a masters is good enough, I just didn't have a Ph.D. in me. I've been going to Dragon*Con for three years now. I have gotten autographs from: Garret Wang (Ensign Harry Kim on Star Trek: Voyager - extremely nice and gracious with fans) Ernie Hudson (Winston from Ghostbusters) Peter Mayhew (the guy in the Chewbacca suit in Star Wars) Peter Davidson (5th Doctor Who) Peter Jurasik (Londo Mollari on Babylon 5 - great guy, went to college with my uncle) Kevin Sorbo (Hercules and later Dylan Hunt on Andromeda - very nice) Jim Butcher (author of the Dresden Files series) I'm a security geek so these guys are famous to me: Bruce Schneier (computer security guru - entertaining speaker) Kevin Mitnick (infamous hacker turned author and consultant)
  • I have met: Gym Class Heroes Hellogoodbye 30 Seconds To Mars HALIFAX! (That was by far the best one cause I held small little conversations with a couple of them before anyone noticed them and lined all up.) Jake from The Casualties Armor For Sleep Senses Fail Plain White T's I also met Dale Earnhardt Sr. before he died (I never watch NASCAR though, but he seemed nice) Charles Mann, from a former Redskins line-up. I forgot what position he was, I was a little kid. I met 2001 or 2002's Miss USA. I can't think of anymore.

  • There was a time in my youth I worked as a reporter and photographer for a rock magazine. I had the opportunity to meet many famous artists, here are just a few. Metallica Stevie Ray Vaughn Slayer Motley Crue (Nikki Six) Exodus Testament Disturbed Soundgarden Nirvana Queensryche (Geoff Tate) Pantera and Dimebag Darrell Rob Halford (Judas Priest) ...and many others. Special note; Dee Snider of Twisted Sister, (and his lame ass band Blackwidow, are the most memorable, Dee is definately a legend in his own mind and a complete asshole. He rudely interrupted an interview with an upcoming Poison rip off outfit know as Tuff, that sonofabitch had one of his cronys evict me in mid interview and in the process they trashed my $800 camera. His attitude sux as much as his music does. In my opinion he is the most obnoxious dick in the music industry to date...and thusly I am not surprised of Blackwidows or TS's failure.) Actors and actress I have met. Matthew Mchanahy (I know I spelled that wrong.) Sandra Bullock Pauly Shore Woody Harrelson Robert Duval Antonio Banderas Quentin Tarantino Thats all I can remember right now, but those are the most significant.

  • I passed by Rosie O'Donnell at a street fair last summer, not a fan so no interest there. I was in a Wendy's restaurant and saw William Hurt, hard to believe rich people would eat there.

  • When i was in high school i was in a nursing program and we traveled to Houston. We were staying in a hotel and we decided to order pizza from downstairs. The guy told me it woudl be ready in 20 min. 20 min. later i went down to pick it up and i wasn't allowed into the pizza hut. I asked what was up and the dumb security wouldn't tell me. I started creating a scene because, uh, i had ordered pizza 20 min. ago and now they were telling me i had to wait. Finally some guy that was inside came out and asked what was wrong. I told him the idiot of a security guard wsn't letting me in. He chuckled and let me inside where there were a bunch of other guys chowing down. I got my pizza, courtesy of the mysterious stranger. I said thanks and went on my way. When i walked out my roommates were standing outside with their jaws to the floor. They said, "you wer etalking to sammy sosa?!" I said, "I was? Ah crap! that's who that was!" I looked back and the guys were looking out chuckling, or laughing whatever. I felt like an ass for not recognizing him. Oh well.

That's all I can think of for now.
  • The most famous person I have met is Tim Allen when he was shooting on location for Home Improvement. He doesn't act much. He really is like that; a normal guy who loves powerful machinery. Only celebrity we ever had on board that actually wanted to visit the engineering spaces. Also he smokes Marlboro reds. I had to give him a light.
  • Yes, and I insulted him unknowingly after he carried my bags at the airport. I didn't notice the "NFL Players Association" on his duffle bag until after I made an arse of myself. I saw he had a Bills polo shirt on, and said, "The Bills? Oh, man, you need a new team. Any team that can loose the Superbowl four years in a row should be banned from it..." Guess what? :( That was a huge foot-in-mouth moment.
  • I met Stephen King when I was almost 8, I shook his hand and acted all cantankerous because my mum had'nt let me start reading 'Carrie' the night before. Probably a good move on her part, but it still put me in a bad mood, and ruined that book signing for me.
  • Yes quite a few, So I do not do anything out of the norm it is a part of my life. My mother was involved in the pop scene in the 60s and 70s so I grew up knowing quite a few as friends.
  • I had several rock and roll bands in the 60s. we were the opening band for many big name concert rock and roll artists, like roy orbison, rufus thomas, the shirelles and many more. Never did ask for an autograph. did not have time.
  • Yes Harrison Ford lives in Jackson and I seen him at the post Office like 15 years ago. I was 15 at the time so I really did not think much of it. And I went to Universal Studios and see the cast of Martin but tried to play it cool
  • Yes. And I found them to be people, just like you and I. I met Melvin Laird dining with a friend at a restaurant. He was working for the Dewitt-Wallace Companies (Readers Digest) as a consultant, and had their American Express card to pay his bill. (I saw it and then found out his middle initial 'R') He was very civil, and surprised that someone as young as I would know he graced the cover of Time, much less was our 10th Secretary of Defense. Also, I sat with Jack Nicholas in the locker room at the Player's Club one year during the final rounds of TPC at the old Sawgrass (beachside) Course. We were both sitting down to change out our shoes, and I commented how gracious he always seemed to the gallery. He smiled and thanked me, and I complimented him on his round and told him how my Dad was a huge fan. He wrote a quick note on a greeting card addressing my Dad by name, and signed it. Not many players today would take the time, much less bother to address anyone by name. And there are others, but the most interesting was Wayne Weaver, owner of the shoe empire and an NFL team. We were both in a Jacobson's Department store in the Menswear section, and exchanged pleasantries. He was kind and civil, but the most telling moment was when we both had to try on our selections. This store had fancy saloon type swinging doors for each changing area, and they were open at the bottom. Wayne was buying slacks, and I a sport coat, and as I walked past his booth, I slowed and bent down to glance under the doors. And guess what? He put his trousers on one leg at a time, just like you and I. I know: I saw that with my own eyes.
  • I have met tommy chong and stevo in person ,lol they were both really hi!stevo was wasted falling allover my girlfriend all drunk at the luxor casino at a bar.tommy chong i met at the hash bash in ann arbor michigan like 8 yrs ago and his first words were"im so high i dont even know what to say".was pretty funny.

  • Yes, and I said hello. In 3 cases I spoke with them for abit.
  • Nicole Kidman, she used my friends dads horse ranch one summer years ago,,,,and she was a bitch. Sorry for the language but if thats what its like to be a celebrity no thank you!
  • yes i have seen numerous celebrities and every time I said "hello" and attempted to carry a conversation. They're regular people no matter how much "regular" people like me and you don't seem to believe it or even they don't believe it.
  • Yep, many. I assume that they usually like to be treated normally so I don't even acknowledge their 'special' status. The exception being Tim Allen who bumped into me on the (unlit) smoking sponson of a ship. I asked him how he liked the main-spaces as I gave him a light and recommended that he replace his lighter with a decent Zippo, a lighter with more power. (His disposable wouldn't light in the wind we had blowing.)
  • Yes, I have met several over the years, but the one that stands out in my memory was when I met Charlie Rich at a rest area on I-40 between Nashville and Memphis, TN. He pulled into the space beside me and took his little boy into use the rest room and when he came out I introduced myself, shook his hand and told him how much I liked his music. He thanked me and we chatted there for about 10 minutes. A very friendly and approachable guy. I did not ask for an autograph and he did not offer. I was just glad to have met him. That was in '73 or '74 I believe.
  • I met David Canary at a rodeo in Canada years ago, he played the short lived brother Candy on Bonanza. I got his autograph and forgot about it. Years later I lived in a remote Northern community where everyone watched All My Children, so I did for a couple of years. After I moved away from that community, and had stopped watching that show, I came to realize that David Canary was also Adam and Stuart Chandler, from all my children
  • my bro met the the chili peppers in LA airport- mind you, he didn't know who they were- but they fell in love with our dog(Alaskan malamute)and ferrets, my bro was traveling with all the time. so they spent some time petting them, my bro said "that guy was so hilarious"(Flea)- they took a group photo with the pets- I was over the hill(was 15y/o)to have a picture of them with my pets..
  • Bono. Spilled his drink on him. D'oh! Scroll down. . . answer 40 something here http://www.answerbag.com/q_view/76442 I was at a fund raising party in Los Angeles in the late 80s, say Joshua Tree timeframe. Bono was getting ready to do a set by himself (sans the rest of U2) on this little stage that was set up on the first floor. It was crowded and I was backing up to let a couple through the area where we were standing and I backed into the guy and there went his drink all over his bare chest (the leather vest and no shirt phase). I clasped my hand to my mouth, my eyes must have been huge, and I managed to stammer out a lame apology. He was feeling pretty good I would say (open bar!)and he grinned and said not to worry and went back to checking his equipment.

  • I have met many professional tennis players of the 80's, McEnroe, Sampras, and the likes. I used to be a professional junior and got to meet them all the time and even hit with a number of them. At the end of the day they are just normal people and like to be treated that way i figure.
  • I saw David Beckham behind the scenes when he was filming an advert. I just said 'alright?' to him like he wasn't famous.
  • Asked before, 58 replies and counting here's the link http://www.answerbag.com/q_view/76442 Edit: Why rate me down for pointing out that this was asked before? I was simply pointiing you in the right direction since your question is a duplicate and will likely be removed. Edit: This answer was transferred here from the rejected duplicate question. I think a big "I told you so" is in order.
  • i met the band lonestar at the fair once.

  • I had a well known fotball player in a class I taught and ddn't know who he was. He said he worked for the 49ers and I asked what he did for them. I bumped into a television star who lives in our town at the Hometown Buffet and I said, "well hey." That is tow of the times.
  • Quite a few in passing over the years...but in my mind, most notable was Celine Dion (not because I have any sort of fondness for her but because she is so easily pigeonholed and made fun of). I was in Quebec City in 1998 and there she was, signing autographs in front of the Parliament building. I joined up in the queue and fished around in my pockets for some scrap of paper so I could at least have a souvenir of the occasion. The only thing I found and was willing to sacrifice was one American dollar. I somehow got pushed to the front; she saw me, I waved the dollar and she turned her back and walked. We did this a couple more times, me rushing further down the line to catch up with her as she walked. Finally, I got to the front of the line again, and in frustration, I thrust a Canadian 5 dollar bill at her, which she took from me and scribbled upon. I viewed it as petty and stuck-up at the time. In retrospect, it's just kind of funny.
  • Very often while working in the large hotels,I have served seven prime ministers past and present.The most respected was without doubt Mrs.Thatcher the whole atmosphere of a room used to change when she entered it. It always seemed whoever was in the room,whoever they were in conversation with did no longer matter,they all just wanted a moment of Mrs.Thatcher's time,a very fine lady.
  • I saw Elvis and took his picture in 1976.
  • yes i met Tina Keeper from north of 60. She was very nice.
  • I met the band Sum 41. They were all really cool guys!
  • I met Stephen King at a book signing once. Shook his hand and everything. Now I'm sure some of you wouldn't consider authors "Celebrities" but I sure do.
  • When I was a waitress, I waited on Merle Haggard and his crew. There were 10 of them, and I made a whole dollar off that table. I don't know if he was mad about something, but he was rude and cranky. Maybe he was upset because I didn't swoon and tell him I knew who he was. I also waited on Pake McEntire (Reba's brother). Well, he joined a table full of people and ate their leftovers. Reba stomped in, stood at the table pointing her finger at him, appearing to chew him out for something, and stomped back out.
  • I met Michel Platini who Captained France when they won the World Cup in the 80s. He was their manager when I met him. He shook my hand (I was doing some work on computers in the world cup building).
